Heartfelt Wednesday's

Hi, today I am sharing with you a new card made for Heartfelt Creations.
It is a gatefold card and it is similar to the one that is made with the "Layered Elegant Swirl" you can see that video here. However this card is a little bigger, so I will include the instructions below. 
This card is using the "Layered Scalloped Posy" dies and many of the NEW collection called 
I really loved the way this card came out, it truly is elegant and perfect for that someone special who would love a card like this does take a bit longer than your standard card, but totally worth the ending result! 

 Here is a view of the inside....many times when I make a card for Heartfelt Creations I only make the outside, however for this card it was a total must to make the inside just as elegant as the outside.
I decided to only stamp on the center, so that if you wanted to have more space for journaling you could also do that on the sides. 

Here is a view of it flat as you can see the flowers pop of the card....:)

Here are the full instructions on how I made my Gatefold Card:

The gatefold card closed measures 5.25 x 7 inches. First, cut pink cardstock 7 inches x 10.75 inches. Score at 2.25 inches and at 8 inches, fold to center. Place “Layered Scalloped Posy” Edge on the top in the center then line up edge with small “Layered Scalloped Posy” Edge, run it through grand calibur. Line up other small “Layered Scalloped Posy” Edge on opposite side and run it through grand calibur. Using exacto knife cut off excess. Front 2 panels in white cardstock measure 2.25 x 5.5 inches. Diecut both panels with “Layered Scalloped Posy” on the top.  Do the same for the inside 2 panels too. Stamp “Tattered Collage” half on the right and other half on the left. Color with copic markers. Stamp 4 smallest and 2 next size up of the “Tattered Blossoms”, Diecut with “Tattered Blossoms Die” Color with copic markers, add glitter gloss, fairy dust glitter and pearls in center. Place pop dots in between and place over colored flowers. Inside panel measures 4.25 x 6.5 inches, diecut like small panels and stamp “Tattered Blossoms Swirls”, color with copic markers and add pearls to center of flowers. Glue all pieces together. Stamp “Heartfelt Expressions” and diecut with “Labels 20” chalk edges in pink and add liquid pearls. Add pink ribbon around card and use clear zots in back to adhere to card base.
